Legal Professionals Section Advisor: Patricia Fry

This month, the NNA’s Legal Professionals Section reported on notarial misconduct by attorneys, signer capacity and lessons of the national mortgage settlement. To deliver this level of industry-specific information to Notaries, the NNA has developed a distinguished Advisory Panel for each of its six Professional Sections. In this Advisor Spotlight, we introduce you to Legal Professionals Section Advisor Patricia Fry.

Patricia Fry is a longtime member of the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL). She chaired the organization’s Drafting Committee that authored the Revised Uniform Law on Notarial Acts, a model law published in 2010 that serves as the basis for state to modernize and strengthen their Notary statues. She was named as the NNA’s 2011 March Fong Eu Achievement Award recipient for her efforts to strengthen the American Notary office. She also has served on numerous committees with the American Bar Association and NCCUSL.
